US: AB conducts “Green Week”
Anheuser- Busch has hosted a "Green Week" of events and activities at many of its facilities across the US.
Employees participated in a number of environmental, health and safety activities to celebrate last Saturday's (22 April) Earth Day.
The brewer teamed up with conservation partners American Forests to provide participating facilities with an Abe Lincoln Overcup Oak, grown from an Oak seed taken from the home of Abraham Lincoln.
Anheuser-Busch director of environmental affairs John Stier said: "Anheuser-Busch has been involved in conservation, education, research and preservation efforts for more than 100 years.
"Our company-wide Green Week is an important opportunity to educate employees about the company's environmental stewardship programs, and encourage them to get involved in similar beautification and conservation efforts at work, at home, and in the community."
In addition, Anheuser-Busch's technology centre was certified under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System this year.
Anheuser-Busch group vice president of brewing operations and technology, Doug Muhleman, said: "The Technology Center was designed and built and is operated in an ecological and resource-efficient manner.
"In addition to being environmentally friendly, this building provides employees with a state-of- the-art work environment that is comfortable and productive, and saves money by lowering operating costs over the lifetime of the structure."
